Great News

I'm so happy I've won one of Brenda's holiday prizes. Over the last couple of weeks she posted clues of where she was and we had to guess. Today I found I was one of the winners, hooray!! 
I took a little walk today to try and get some new photos and have a practice with my new lens. It's lovely and warm outside but the sun is completely obscured by clouds.  Here are my favourites.

For the crafting readers I found this handbag card that I'd forgotten to post. It's one of the set I made for QVC to use for the Craftwork Cards handbag kit they have.
Also a couple more sneaky peeks from project 'Top Secret' Sssshhh!

Hi Anesha,

Its a 50mm lens, I'm finding it a bit tricky because I'm usually too close to my subject. I keep forgetting its me that has to move and not the lens!

Vine Tutorial

On Monday morning I took part in the UKScrappers blog hop, who would have predicted the response to the flowers I had made for the layout. In particular the rose vine. I was flabbergasted, but promised I would let everybody know how I had done it. If anybody does make one of these vines please could you credit me and if posted in a blog I would appreciate a link back to me.
I was absolutely inspired by the gorgeous Prima vines, I have purchased many but due to the cost they remain in my stash, I am too frightened to use them because they are not cheap. They fall into the category of  'waiting for a special projrect'. This made me challenge myself to see if i could make something similar.

Over the last few years sources one of my favourite sources of inspiration and a 'go to' for getting your creativity going again has become Pinterest. I think I use it almost as much as google. I recently saw this layout and knew I wanted to lift it. Here is the result

I loved its simplicity and I was able to use a photo that is almost 30 years old. See those scrabble type tiles, Ive had them years and was happy I could use some on here.

Birthday Cards for Men

Cards for men really are quite difficult, so when I find a colour combination that isn't just blue and can work for men I use it. One of my favourite combinations is a bright blue, bright red and white. I think its modern and bright. Over the last weekend I made a few cards with this colour scheme, those of you who visit me regularly will also know I like simple. We have worked our way through all the previous cards I made for the boys at work so another batch was called for beginning with this one.
